Before the lovely summer clothes season begins I just want to sneak in a winter make.
I joined the rest of the world when Tilly’s Coco pattern came out and quickly purchased it. How long ago was that now??
This is my first one! Unbelievable when I’ve seen and loved so many since its release, not really sure what took me so long but better late than never!
I chose this vibrant purple stretch fabric on a visit to Guthrie and Ghani a while back and it’s been lazing around in my stash ever since.
I enjoyed working with this fabric and it was a very quick make.
I chose the funnel neck and the long sleeves to keep me cosy during the winter and it hasn’t let me down.
I also went the whole hog and added pockets which i decided to decorate with matching covered buttons.
I love this dress – however – by next winter there’s a good chance it will have been shortened into a Coco top. this is because of the gorgeous purple colour. I love purple and really love this shade but I’m not sure if its a bit ‘flashy’ for me in a dress. I think I may feel more comfortable with the top version….who knows – I’ve got all spring, summer and autumn to decide so watch this space!
